Vacancy Description

Catering and Hospitality
Working alongside the business owners, the Assistant Artisan Baker will be involved at every stage of the process of making sourdough bread. This will include, weighing out ingredients, hand mixing, dough development, hand shaping and baking.
In addition, the Assistant Artisan Baker will be involved in the making of handmade sourdough croissants and other pastry products (known as viennoiserie). Our breads follow a slow fermentation process, meaning we make the dough's the day before, refrigerate overnight and bake the following morning.
Following training, the post holder will be expected to work without direct supervision, and be confident, for example to open the Bakery in the morning and use ovens to bake the bread and viennoiserie. In addition, there will be opportunity to develop new product lines and flavours.
All Bakers are responsible for undertaking cleaning at the end of dough production and bakery sessions (this essential activity is shared across all Bakers and the business owners).
ANUNA Craft Bakery currently attends three to four markets a week along with Seasonal Food Festivals.
Where required, the Assistant Artisan Baker will attend in support, handling bread, taking payment and speaking to our wide customer base.
The nature of our business means that there will be some early starts and weekend work. Also, the Assistant Artisan Baker will need to develop upper body strength and be able to stand for long periods of time.
In order to support the markets and Seasonal Food Festivals, the post holder must hold a valid driving licence (or be in the process of obtaining their driving licence).

Training provided

Full on the job training will be provided by the company, leading to a sustainable job for the right candidate.
